Grant County Fair Lambs
« on: August 18, 2019, 04:36:46 PM »
What a great week at the Grant County Fair! With a little interest on here about fair lambs, I thought I would give a report. Market went well on Tuesday with my daughter getting a blue and my son getting a call back. Wednesday, my daughter took Grand Champion in prospect lamb, which was pretty exciting!

Thursday was Fitting & Showing. My Son won his class and punched his ticket to the Jr Fit and Show  final drive. He took Reserve Grand Champion finishing only to his best friend and fellow 4-H club member who was Grand Champion. Was pretty awesome for my little buddy!

My Daughter also won her class of intermediates in Fit & Show to punch her ticket to the Intermediate Fit and Show Final drive. Her lamb and her showed as well as ever, and they were rewarded as Intermediate Grand Champions!

Proud of my kids. My Daughter showed her Horse, competed in Western Games, bringing home some more ribbons. She rode in the grand entry all 3 night of the Moses Lake Roundup. She also did well with her rabbit. My son only showed his lamb, but was very busy as well.

Man thatís some good stuff. Congrats to them for all their hard work and the rewards they EARNED!!

We coop in on Wednesday night at the evergreen state fair in Monroe. My kid shows rabbits but sheís also competing in the foods and plant and soil sciences(gardening). A couple of our friends are showing sheep and will be selling lambs.

Our youth livestock show is Saturday night.

 :chuckle: My son is a happy little guy, but he is not much of a smiler for the camera. The pic with the judge was a pretty good smile though!

Yes! Planning already...Kids want to buy a heifer and enter into the bred heifer category. Daughter has the plan of gaining experience showing a large animal by way of the heifer and going on to a steer the next year. She is even looking as far forward as to showing the heifers calf if its a bull calf...She makes a good argument... :chuckle:

@Jackelope...good luck to you guys at Monroe! Looking forward to hearing how it goes!

I love seeing posts like this and the other one.  I've thought about posting more 4-H stuff because I feel there would be families in this community with kids who might be interested. Maybe I will. Whether it's showing lambs and rabbits and beef cows or the other non-animal stuff, it's a great program for kids to get involved in. Promoting this stuff to get more kids involved will only do good things.
Thanks for sharing.
